  • LilyGo sells Open-Smartwatch open-source hardware ESP32 watch by "Paul's 3D Things"

  • DehneEVSE is a custom, Nano 33 IoT-controlled EV charging station | Arduino Blog

    Sebastian Dehne decided to build a custom electric vehicle (EV) charging station for his Nissan Leaf from scratch, as what he calls “a real full stack project.” He notes that creating your own gives you total control over the system, and it’s both fun and cheaper than purchasing a ready-made device.

    The aptly named DehneEVSE is based on an Arduino Nano 33 IoT for control and current/voltage sensing, and connects via WiFi to a server that handles charging logic. UI consists of a web app that uses WebSockets to listen for real-time updates and display power consumption for all three phases. Aside from the stats, the app enables Dehne to turn charging on/off or to a low-cost setting, which regulates charge depending on the price of energy at a particular time.

  • How to Install or Enable Cockpit on AlmaLinux 8 - Linux Shout

    The Cockpit on AlmaLinux is a server management platform that allows administrators to easily manage and control their GUI or CLI Linux server systems remotely using a browser. Among other things, admins can take a look at the systemd journal, check the load or start and stop services. It has a responsive design thus we can also use it conveniently on tablet s and smartphones. We can monitor our remote server performance using just a browser without actually having physical access to it. Furthermore, we can also access the command shell with root access to issue commands and install various packages over the server remotely. Since AlmaLinux 8 is based on RHEL just like CentOS 8, this means by default out of the box, the Cockpit is already installed on your system. Just we need to enable it.
